Hi My Porchies...

Shanda...Oh Congrats
On the College Grad.!
Proud Mama I can tell and rightly so!!! That is just such an accomplishment and you did it with no debt...that is almost unheard of. Quite a feet there let me tell you! Enjoy your time with your boy home...it doesn't sound like he'll be there long. Feed him good and love on him lots! Praise the Lord for Skype...non of us have to be cut off from our loved ones no matter where they journey off to.

Becky...I hoped you shared with your husband about the "womb bleeding" from the cat scratch. It really was funny. Crazy how when we are tired words don't come out of our mouths right sometimes. BUT Hey, it makes for some amusing reading for the rest of us. LOL

RFM Tammy...wow becareful...sounds like that WalMart Job could be hazardous to your body. You did a lot in one shift...whew girl. Sounds like work to me. I'm use to being LAZY...and found that I quite like it. If I had known Retirement was so much fun...I would have done it earlier in life. LOL

Well, darling Sadie is starting to have backaches and not feeling good. I hope baby Elijah joins the family this weekend.
That would be awesome!!!

Had Birthday Night at Bible Study tonight. Which is just really one big two hour party!!! It was so much fun! And I loved that my new Diet allows you 2 free meals aweek...so you can partake of family & friend gathering nights without feeling guilty that you indulged in a piece of birthday cake. We had 4 girls having birthday's this month. ~ Now Bible Study is out for the Summer and some of us gather each week for a crafting group. Which is just one fun night a week of working on your favorite craft and chatting up a storm. It is so much fun.

Well...off to read tonight. I am reading a Michael
Connolly Murder Mystery for my Book Group. It is good...and is called
Blood Work.

Nightie Night My Sweet Ladies,
Peggy

CJ6...took me a minute to figure out what a uti was. Duh, Peggy!
You both have my prayers. Hope you both have a lovely weekend despite the yucks!
Maybe some special Mother/Daughter time despite how you both feel.

Love, Hugs, and Prayers,
Peggy

Hi CJ,
I have been fighting a UTI for 9 days. I used AZO which is over the counter and will stop symptoms, but when I stopped taking it the symptoms came right back. I had to break down and go to the doc today.
Cranberry juice, grapefruit juice and lots of water help.

Terri,I have been fighting this one since last weekend...bleah! I have been doing blueberry juice,lemon and water,cranberry capsules and a whole body detox.
I learned that blueberries are better than cranberries,though both are good. That the juice you drink to fight a uti or kidney infection,must be 100% blueberry or cranberry juice...no sugar no other juices to sweeten and staying away from white flour and white rice because our body turns them into sugar.Lemon and water will detox the kidneys and D-mannose is a good homeopathic for fighting a uti also. I just went and got some D-Mannose yesterday.

Terri,I hope you feel better soon.

CJ,
Thanks for the info. The cephalexin (keflex) is kicking this thing. Finally.
I will check out the D-mannose though for preventative measures.
I am feeling much better. This may have started from bacteria in a cantaloupe if you can believe that.
Thanks for all your concerns,
Terri

Well My Porchies...are you all hiding???? At least I know four of us are here.

Still no baby this weekend. Goodness...this child is just like his parents...always late. LOL
No, not really his due date is Wed. the 22nd. I'm just on pins and needles though waiting for him
to come join the Family in person. It is funny because for 8 months it just seemed to fly by...
then this last month has been tortuously slow. These grandmama arms just can't wait to hold him.
Daddy is getting a bit antsy too...but mom keeps saying...No, I'm not ready yet!

Didn't do much today. Went to a new coffee shop and had some study time with the Lord and visiting with
my hubby. We were both in great moods and had fun bantering back and forth. Sharing scripture and just
teasing each other.

Terri...hope you are feeling better. Cantaloupe huh? Wow, that sounds scary!

Cherime...are you getting warmer weather and more sunshine now??

CJ6...hope you are getting better too. Nothing worse that being down and sick.

I'm praying for everyone on the Eastern Side of the Country with all the tornadoes. Have seen
some devastating news reports already.

Well, girls...I have my first zucchini growing now. Oh, it is early but I am so Happy! Will fit right in with
my new diet. Tomatoes are blossoming. The squirrels keep going into my planters and kicking all the new soil out
onto the ground. The little rascals. They maybe cute but they are a big nuisance if you ask me.

I started a really good Christian Fiction Book today called "The Hidden Son"...it is a riveting read. Written by
Dianna T. Benson. I was able to borrow it for free on my Kindle because I have Prime. It is a Cayman Island Mystery.

Well, that is about all that is new with me over the Weekend.
More chitter-chatter tomorrow girls.

Hugs,
Peggy

Peggy, babies tend to come at the most awkward times.
As for spring, it has been cancelled up here due to a late late snowstorm. I have never see the like since 1976 and I think that dratted thing may have set a record. Regardless of the reason for it the weather pattern has changed. If it doesn't warm up I am going to have to buy a tank of fuel oil which is not possible at this moment as I used fuel money to pay a couple of back due bills off. Ah well.
Writing is going well. The one I am working on now is about a divorced man and woman trying to put together a new life and new family. Since it is impossible to do anything out side stayed in and wrote. Got 3 chapters done yesterday.
Granddaughter is going in for a brain test tomorrow.
Blessings all.

Ok, posse dragging me in... I have been busy working and doing homework. Last week I didn't feel well. I have been dizzy all week and had a hard time thinking straight. I did a terrible job with on of my classes. I didn't get the job at the Christian school but I'm ok with it. It wasn't enough to do much good anyway. I'm almost afraid to talk about it, but I have a line on a very good job back home in California. A friend of mine's daughter is moving to the corporate office and her position is available. The logistics of it are a little daunting but if God is in charge, all will work out. Please pray for me! Not just to get the job, but only if it is one I can do. My friend says her daughter makes about $60,000.00 a year with bonuses. It is in the area I just left and my older son says he would share a house with me. But I know stuff like this has come my way before and didn't materialize. So I'm not getting my hopes up. (At least trying not to)

The weather has been wonderful. Aside from the dizziness, my fibro hasn't shown up at all. I think it is more weather related. That means moving back to California to the mountains will probably help too.

So that's what I have been up to. Please pray for God's will to be the same as mine. I have learned not to pray for something just because I want it. I have to add all the small print too. Lol

Peggy, I don't blame mommy to be for wanting to wait. The first month is really hard on new parents. The little guy will be here before you know it.

Cherime, I hate to say this....but you do live in Alaska! Sorry you are not getting a break from the snow. It seems every year lately has been different. I think it won't be business as usual with the weather for a long time. At least you can write. You just need a best seller! Good luck with the doctors appointment.

Anyway, schoolwork is waiting. Later everyone!

Oh, and I know next month is my tea month. Hate so say it but I just haven't had much time for making anything fun for tuck-ins. I'm still trying to decide on a tea. So I'm taking a vote. Do you want something fruity, unique and different, a blend of something typical ( like earl grey with lavender) or exotic. Let me know!

Tammy, I'm so silly. You are right, I'm July tea hostess. Thank you for keeping me straight.

Terri, I'm afraid if I pull this off I will be in Northern California. I'm from Sonora and the job is in Chinese Camp. I will be closer to another one of my farmgirl pals that just moved over the hill from where I hope to be. I just have to get an interview first!

Hello, just checking in. Were are hopefully at the tail end of these storms. No damage to my family homes, but lots of limbs and small trees down. Our roads are flooded, so we'll be stuck for abit. A house down the road had a tree come down on it, and it's knocked out the electricity for a while now. Our fire dept. has been there and everyone got out safe. We've had to take cover a few times because of funnel clouds, but nothing close to what Moore had. (praying for them, we have church family who have loved ones there who lost homes) Lots of high wind, rain and hail.

Thank goodness for propane stoves and generators!

Blessings

Shanda

Bunny...Oh my goodness girl...wouldn't you love to move back to California...closer to your boys and everything?
Wow...I am praying for you. I love to try different types of tea. So I am open to anything different.

Teacher Tammy...glad that you girls got it straightened out about who had which Tea Month. LOl Did we get tea for May?
It has been such a crazy month around here that I don't even remember? *brain freeze*

Cherime...I think we are going backwards in our weather. We skipped Spring and went right into Summer Weather and now
it has gone back to Winter Weather. Cold Wet and Miserable. I thought I was going to drowned today! Nothing worse than
cold rain...that seeps into your bones and muscles.

Shanda...so glad to hear that you guys are OK. I watched The Special on Moore tonight and it is a Miracle that more people
were not killed. They had told us on our NW News that there had been 91 killed and then tonight revised it 24. I loved
hearing the Teachers say that they were praying out loud for their students not to be harmed. Yeah...just try taking prayer
out of school....it's there when it counts the most. And when you look at those two schools...you know God answered those
prayers. They looked like no one should have gotten out alive. Praise God for those teachers using their own bodies to
shelter those children. Amazing!

Well...I called my youngest son and dil tonight and told them that if Elijah wasn't born tomorrow (His due date)...that I
was sending him and eviction notice. They both laughed...being in property management...they thought it was a cute statement.



See, I am all ready for him. I got this cute bassinet yesterday for him. Got it at a resale store for $30.00. Washed it all yesterday
and then put it back together last night. It is nice that it is small...so it doesn't take up much room in my bedroom.

OK...please pray for our dog Snickers. He is in so much pain from his hip. We go to the Vet who will do the Surgery tomorrow...for a surgery consult. I do not know where we are going to come up with the money...I am trusting God on this. I never heard back from the Organization called Angels of Animals. I guess I need to dig a little deeper for help. We are thinking about selling the VW to pay
for the surgery. But first we have to get that fixed.

Night Lovely Ladies,
Peggy

Hello girls,
I thought I would come in and sit. I shampooed carpets in four rooms today. I still have two left..but ran out of cleaner and decided that was a sign I was to sit.

Peggy that bassinet is so darn cute. Praying that baby comes soon.

Bunny any news on the job interview

Shanda glad you checked in I was thinking of you. I was so touched to the heart as I watched the teachers pray and protect their students. Prayer should be in all schools..oh I digress it is a bit of an issue with me can you tell

Judy where are you hiding out...don't make me put my hands on my hips and fly after you. You know I tend to make an entrance...hope all is well.

well I am off to sit in my chair and have tea and read. my dear hubby got me a nook tablet for mother's day and I have been enjoying just learning how to use it. I believe it will come in handy in my classroom as well.

love to you all
Tammy

Peggy Ann,
I so agree with you about prayer. No one, I mean no one, complained about "separation of church and state" when it was reported that the teachers and kids were praying during the storm. What a shame that it takes a tragedy to get prayer in the news and on TV.

Glad you are ok too. I put a post under "Across the Fence" to see if others in OK were ok.
Across the Fence: Everyone ok after tornadoes?
Mary Beth reported that everything is ok with them and they were prepared to camp out for a while.

Tammy, the job posted today and the college career coordinator is helping me with my resume. My friend gave me her daughter's number (she has the job now) so I could call her and get more information. I have been praying about it and my prayer is essentially "don't give me the job if I can't do it". I am trusting that God will only put me there if it is truly something I can do both mentally and physically. I'll be OK if it does't come through. I'll just know God has another plan in line.
